Thank you for opening the newsletter.

It's the end of December!

I wanted to publish this email earlier but I have not been feeling well these days. I went to ER twice in the last 3 weeks and still having some breathing issue. Sorry guys!

Was it a good year for you this year? It was to me!

My son was born in March and he has been bringing shining smiles to our family. We have more smiles and laughter, thanks to him!

And also finally I have made DVDs for Kendo Basic Movements. Only this product lacked DVD but now 3 DVDs are ready.

To celebrate this and to appreciate your support in 2012, I grouped all the DVDs I made so far into various bundles and start 5 day special sale from 12/31.

You can check them out from here.

No article this time but here are a lot of goodies in update so please check them out!

Hope you enjoy these new pages as well as the updates!

Thank you!

Hiro Imafuji
